Excerpt: I can't imagine a better product for the money. The low light performance is truly amazing. I've used them next to the Swarvoskis, and I couldn't tell the difference in a low light environment.
Excerpt: These binoculars are similar to pair of Nikon Monarchs I have had for about 5 years, which originally cost somewhat less than the Vipers. I have used the Nikons extensively, and they are great.
I have owned a Vortex Razor spotting scope for several years.
Summary: The binoculars are incredible. The glass is extremely clear producing crisply sharp images. I looked at every binocular I could get my hands on before I bought these and I can say these are comparable or better than some that costed well over 1K. What I love most is the massive sight picture.
Pros: Price, Sight Picture, Glass, Well Made, Etc...
Excerpt: I already had these binoculars and used them to deer hunt in Missouri. They're spectacular for that, so spectacular in fact, that they never leave my side now. I had to purchase another set after my father looked through mine and was blown away with the clarity, and especially the low light...
Summary: I actually sold a pair of Swarovski to get these. Overall not disappointed. Clear, good at low light and seems durable. I wanted more power (from 8x to 10x). The only thing Im seeing is that the focus does not have much room for error. It is a very fine line between focus and blurry.
Summary: THESE BINOS A GOOD. THEY ARE A LOT CLEARER THAN MY OLD DIAMONDACKS BUT STILL NOT AS NICE AS MY BUDDYS LEICAS AT SUNDOWN. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. THEY WILL BE GREAT FOR MOST HUNTERS. THE LOOK AND FEEL OF THESE BINOS IS GREAT.
Excerpt: I am a birder and upgraded from 8x42 Vortex Viper binocs[which were great] to these, which are awesome! The detail/resolution is amazing and they really let in alot of light even in low light situations.
Summary: I bought these Vortex Viper HD's and they are comparatively light and very easy to focus. The brightness and clarity are equal to much more expensive glass. Very good in low light conditions. Vortex has best customer service of all.
Summary: This is a great binocular for the price. I have looked through many others that cost twice as much and aren't as clear or bright as these. Eye fatigue from hours of glassing is greatly reduced from what I experienced with my old gold rings. Also, these are much brighter in low light.
Summary: I would honestly compare these with binos at 2-3 times the cost. I've used Leicas and Swarovskis,,,,which have durn fine glass. All my scopes are Leupold. I have a set of Pentax (which are complete fecal matter and the company sucks) binos that I use for TX deer hunting 75 yds and in.
Pros: Clarity, light transmission, quality of glass
